walker of salon.com, melissa harris perry, and buzz feed editor in chief ben smith. the election is in 39 days but early voting has begun in more than half of the country. which could account ultimately for a third of all votes cast this year. so it's probably not a good sign the republicans are still pointing fingers openly questioning governor romney's strategy. that is bringing him to pennsylvania at this very hour. that's a state where he was down by 12 points according to a poll from quinnipiac university. other polls out show president obama and romney locked in a tight fight. according to the nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll, president obama has a slight lead in nevada and north carolina but basically within the margin of error. and in virginia, a new poll from suffolk university/nbc 12 puts obama slightly ahead of romney, also within the margin of error. so, how can romney turn it around? it may not be easy. some people within this romney campaign have concluded he's not actually a very good politician. here's what one romney official explained to politico. he said -- no

not be in effect for the general election, the judge says. here was the issue. the pennsylvania passes this new voter i.d. law in march. people that didn't have a driver's license, a government-issued photo i.d. could get the michigan state identification card. then the state said that can be used to board airplanes. we need all sorts of forms of identification. then the state changed its mind and said we'll issue a voter i.d. card that's different. only if you can't get the other card. then they changed their mind on that. the judge said i can't be sure. even tugh the state has now cured a lot of these problems, i can't be sure enough people are going to be able to get the right kind of identification to allow this law to go into effect. i'm going to let the state continue to educate people about the need for photo i.d. i'm going to let the state ask for photo i.d. atle positive, but enjoin the part of the law that requires voters to have photo i.d. people wanted it all put on hold. the judge said i don't need to go that far. there is always the possibility the state could go b

. >> pelley: 200,000 a month. anthony, thanks very much. with just the 32 days to go before the election, of course, the jobs report was topic "a" among candidates. no president since f.d.r. has been reelected with an unemployment rate this high. since f.d.r., president reagan was reelected with the highest unemployment rate in 1984. during his first term, unemployment rose to 10.8%. by election day it was down to 7.2%, which looked so much better in comparison. for mr. obama, unemployment peaked in 2009 at 10%, now three e years later it's 7.8%. for both presidents, unemployment generally trended down all the way to election day. as you might expect, president obama and governor romney saw these numbers quite differently and we have two reports tonight. first, nancy cordes covering the president and she's in cleveland. nancy? >> reporter: scott, you could practically see the relief on the president's face today and not just because this news helped to change the subject from his shaky debate performance. high unemployment has been an albatross around his neck the past four years. today

. the headline, carol, 7.8% is the unemployment rate. one more jobs report until the election. >> okay. so the political implications of this already coming in. in fact, we just got an e-mail from conservatives. this is what they're saying, christine. conservatives are challenging the legitimacy of the labor department number. can someone explain how the jobs added up right where economists were projecting and yet the rate fell to below 8%? also jack welch, the former ge guy. >> yep. >> he's tweeting this morning and saying, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. i mean -- so is it possible the labor department is lying or has changed these numbers in some way? >> look, these numbers are often revised. usually when you have a vibrant growing jobs market a revision of 86,000 doesn't make any difference at all. you have much more jobs being created. we don't have that right now. in terms of why the two numbers are different, there are two different surveys the government does. hou household survey where they ask people wheer they're e
